Have you ever sat down and poured every ounce of your heart onto paper? Have you ever laid awake at night and sang your own love song with tears streaming down your face? Every single drop holds a special memory of days that once were—of happier times full of timeless moments where you found yourself floating through time and space without a single worry or care.
It all started way back in the day with the smallest flutter—a tiny spark of emotion that emanated from that sacred place inside. As things between the two of you progressed, you even began to glow. Your eyes lit up, you felt strong, confident, open, and ready to travel to the ends of the universe and back in order to maintain this perfect flow.
But now, your soul has gone dark, your heart torn asunder, your inner being an empty shell in comparison to days once before. It happens the moment you realize the sun to your moon is simply no more.
Love brings no greater joy and no stronger pain. I know these feelings all too well and have experienced this before. I know what it’s like to glide high and I know how it feels to sink low. In what seems like the blink of an eye you can go from sitting on top of clouds to anxiously seeking escape from inside the deepest well. I understand the sleepless nights, the regret, the anger, and the promise you make to yourself to never again open up, not even once more.
No matter the pain, no matter the hurt, no matter the vow to never be vulnerable again, in time, you will endure. You will rise up, you will heal, you will find your magic and you will grow. Take everything one step at a time. The more you allow yourself to live, the faster your torn heart will heal. The more reasons you find to smile, the quicker your clouded soul will clear.
